Darling Harbour

For amazing entertainment, delicious waterside dining and incredible wildlife, Darling Harbour is the perfect destination in the heart of Sydney. Meet penguins and dugongs at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and get up close to koalas and a giant saltwater crocodile at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo.

You’ll find plenty more exciting things to do and see, from Sydney Harbour cruises and tall ships at the Australian National Maritime Museum to the Chinese Garden of Friendship, a tranquil haven. You can even walk the red carpet with your favourite star at Madame Tussauds, a wax museum.

Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, Darling Harbour

The events calendar is wonderful all year and you can see world-class shows at ICC Sydney, a convention, exhibition and theatre complex. There are special attractions for the kids, too. Darling Quarter Kids Playground has climbing ropes, slides, swings, flying foxes and water games.

The food and wine experiences are delectable, with waterfront restaurants, alfresco cafes and trendy bars along the waterfront at Cockle Bay, King Street Wharf and Harbourside, where there are souvenir shops and fashion boutiques. And you can dance the night away at funky nightclubs, too.
